year. government spending has done next to nothing. bernanke still has no real strategy. we're going to get to all of that with our market panel. who joins us now to talk about these many events of the week. we have peter morici of university of maryland. dan fitzpatrick and john carney returns. you know, dr. frolick, i want to begin with you. not greece, not the euro, not the snows, nothing really week.d stocks from going up the market has peaked in mid january and hasn't moved much in many months. but the fact remains, things may not be so bad. weigh in. >> i think it comes down to earnings, larry. we got some great efshgs. across the board, time warner, ann taylor, a look at comcast, even moodie and sony, it wasn't just earnings, larry, it was top-level revenue growth. the big picture, when you look at china, understand even with them slowing down, when they slowed down the first time, china banks still let $2 billion this january. third highest on record. as investors you have to realize this is money already in pipeline. when you think of china mustard seeds, larry, they're abou
quickly got interest rates to zero. >> when dow, based on what the chairman of the fed mr. bernanke said recently, when do you expect him to begin or the fed to begin feeling like in order to combat inflation they have to do something. >> you know. >> rose: about raising the cost of money. >> i think the fed has made it very clear they don't think that that time is any time soon if you read their statements. they are very careful to say it is certainly a ways off. i think what chairman bernanke was doing was talking about a plan. and how, when it's time will the fed be able to drain reserves so people have the confidence to know that if they get worried, they can, you know, take the reserves out of the system so you don't have inflation. i like to draw the analogy t is very much what the president is doing with his budget, at the same time that he is saying we need to do some more energy spending to create jobs, sort of those targeted measures, we need to put in place a plan for as we come back to full employment, how do we deal with the budget deficit. that is exactly what he is talking
. $5 trillion and rising with every single report. so, who is the president's boss? ben bernanke. ben bernanke. all of our decisions are being made looking through the lens of these people. next, progressive taxes. millions. bringing down hollywood. next. >> glenn: so, yesterday, i was driving to jay leno's car garage. i'll tell you about that on the radio. but, i look up and they are covering the sign of hollywood. these are just we love the little animals. we just want to save the -- look at the mountain. so what they're doing is covering this iconic sign, that they fought so hard to make sure that sign is there. little do they know they don't want in a recession, they don't want any of the houses built on top of the peak. they want to keep pristine like it's always been intended. it's an icon of hollywood. can i show you an old picture? ? this is from 1923 or 1926. put this up. i love this picture. this says hollywoodland. why did it say that? that was originally a giant billboard advertising homes to be built on the peak. behold the irony. we have the publisher of bighollywood.com
said that means henry paulson, tim geithner, and ben bernanke are the dentists. >> let me tell you. i felt like i was having a root canal. >> without anesthesia. >> i was a dentist having a root canal without anesthesia at the same time. but there's a saying in the book on -- my book "on the brink," and this was a day or two before we were going to need to step in and rescue citigroup. and what really hit me was that i was forever going to be associated with these bailouts, and it would be the secretary treasure that did all these interventions. i said that will be the good news. the bad news will be if we can't cobble something that works for citigroup and if it goes down i'll be the secretary treasurer that pre sides over night great recession. >> back with david gergen and diane brady. the reason we have you guys on is because you're honest about this. think henry paulson had it right on there. there's a whole lot of revisionist history going on at capitol hill. diane and david, we were all together during that time, and it seemed like the right thing to do to a lot of people who a
that dr. bernanke, if he has two patients, the one with a positive attitude does better. >> i agree with dr. bernanke, but stress does cause your arteries to con strict, it ka cause the arteries to build up faster, it can cause blood clots to form that causes a heart attack, that's the bad news. but stress is not simply something you do, more importantly it's how you react to what you do. if you practice some simple stress management techniques, you can be in the same job, you can go to haiti, and not have it affect it. you can accomplish even more without getting so stressed and without getting sick in the process. >> larry: sanjay, do you understand why the president is so passionate about haiti? >> he's had an affinity for this place for a long time, larry. i interviewed him when he was down here and talked about haiti with him a few times in the past. he had his honeymoon here, as i know you've talked about, larry, so he's been thinking about haiti for a long time. i think he has a strong affinity not only to haiti but to the haitian people living in haiti and the united states,
, what do you think? >> so far, to date, henry paulson and bernanke have done more to destroy wealth in america than any democrat. but obama is hell bent to replace them in the record book with this new budget. between obama care and cap and trade, that would clearly wipe out all previous attempts. yesterday's jobs bill was a big attempt to put more of this kind of lard back into the economy. it's about half earmarks. thank god for harry reid for throwing that stuff away. >> holy cow! mr. republican saying thank god for harry reid. this is a news alert. neil? >> saying who is at fault, the democrats or republicans is like taking a couple of people who are married to different people, go to a hotel room to do unnatural things and saying one is more at fault than the other. the fact is -- they're both at fault here. that's the problem. >> you hang out with neil. >> we know what the democrats are about. the democrats are about all this spending. the republicans claim that they're not. you have guys like joe wilson, representative who tells obama, you lie, and then goes and takes stimulu
benefits expire isn't going to garner bipartisan support. extending -- bernanke jobs version when the president was asked about when he was here asked about mitch mcconnell talking about how they can support, republicans can support nuclear energy and the president's response was, i'm paraphrasing but of course they like those are republican ideas offering in the name of bipartisanship and what's going on here is the reverse, harry reid taking out the one democratic idea. >> do you think helping small businesses grow by allowing them to write off their expenditures is going to -- something that is a democratic idea? you think that the highway trust fund extension is a uniquely space space idea? if you were to break the components of that bill individually each of those would donner strong bipartisan support. so,, i think we are in some ways over reading some of this because again, i think personally i believe that the components of this bill, several components that were in the bipartisan bill but are not in the reid bill will still be bipartisan. i think -- i don't think any of t
